Just a 40 minute ride away by ferry from Guernsey, passing the small islands of Herm, Jethou and Brecqhou, lies the Isle of Sark. A tractor-drawn cart called the ‘toast rack’ will take you up the steep hill to the main village. With a map of the island and a local guide to point out all that there is to see and do, you will have free time to truly discover this exquisite island.
For many, the joy of Sark is exploring the quiet pretty corners, enjoying breathtaking vistas and finding a secluded cove to relax. Alternatively, you can visit the Occupation and Heritage Museum, watch chocolates being made at Caragh’s, or walk to the famous La Coupee that links Big Sark to Little Sark in the south.
Along the ‘Main Street’ are a number of interesting and unusual shops, and there are a number of places on the island where you can buy refreshments. At the end of the day, take the ‘toast rack’ or walk back down the harbour hill to the pier and the ferry that will take you back to Guernsey.
This excursion will operate by boat, tractor and on foot. There is no transport on the island except the ‘toast rack’ which services the main village. There is approximately five hours free time to explore the island at your own leisure, therefore the amount of walking is at your discretion. No entrance fees have been included. Flat, comfortable walking shoes, sun protection, local currency (pounds sterling) and a camera are recommended.
